We’re glad to have the opportunity to work with The Sharp Project on their Digital Marketing. It’s a great project based in the up and coming East Manchester which provides bespoke, flexible space to creative, digital and media companies.
But it’s so much more than just workspace. The Sharp Project is based in a refurbished Sharp Electronics warehouse. It’s a not-for-profit initiative, led by urban regeneration company New East Manchester on behalf of site owners Manchester City Council. The MASSIVE building offers 200,000 sq ft of workspace, sound stages, and social interactive space open 24/7. The builders are flat out at the moment and are working on getting the building hooked up to fast connectivity starting at 1GB and 6MW of power. Still in the final stages of conversion it’s already home to over 40 companies including Tiger Aspect, Lime, MoCapOne and Barefoot VFX.
Yeah, it’s a walk away from town, but any moment now, the Metrolink station will be open that sits right next to The Sharp Project and takes you straight to town in minutes.
That descripton of it really doesn’t do it justice, so visual effects studio Mi and web agency The Boot room have ressurected the viral homeless robot AHD168 to show you around his new place of work, The Sharp Project.
